Gate advisor

by Mark Rowe

Gate Safe, the charity set up for awareness of the safety requirements for automated gates, has appointed Rob Williams as Technical and Training Advisor.

Rob has worked in the gate automation sector for 15 years and brings industry knowledge to the role. His last position as an Automation Workshop Supervisor required him to train engineers on specific automated gate products; oversee new product development for the company and manage a Technical Support line.

The advisor position will see Rob reporting to Gate Safe founder Richard Jackson, with a focus on delivery of Gate Safe’s IOSH approved training course in the south and south east of England. Rob will also undertake independent risk assessment site surveys; deliver CPD seminars; provide technical support the Gate Safe Aware Installer community and assist in the general day to day operations of Gate Safe.

Rob, pictured, says: “I’ve been a long-term supporter of Gate Safe since its inception and have first-hand knowledge of just how much damage an unsafe gate can inflict. I relish this new challenge which provides an opportunity to combine my technical training background and practical experience of working in the field with a personal desire to play an active part in helping to put a stop to any further automated or manual gate related accidents or fatalities occurring. I’m looking forward to expanding on the excellent work that Richard and his team have already put in place and to maintaining Gate Safe’s position as the go-to hub for all training, guidance and expert advice pertaining to automated gate installations.”
